I haven't played it a ton myself, but I would assume you would sell the treasures and whatnot that you gather while on vacation. The few times I've dabbled in it, it's been quite lucrative, so if I focused on it I'm sure it'll be quite a fortune.

I think, you would complete the aspiration and level the skill to 10 as the official part of the completing it. And as Rozemarjin says, you would uncover and authenticate the artifacts for pay. But only your assigned archaeologist can travel until you reach level 10 in the skill - also they can't take the assignments by mail until level 10 in the skill. This hasn't been play tested yet, but I am on that generation and thinking I need to have the spouse test it out.

Hello! I have a few questions about the vampire mini challenge.

1. Can you founder be created as a vampire in CAS starting out, or do they have to be turned by a vampire in game?

2. Do you move out or cure the founder/heir once their generation is over?

3. Say I really liked my founder/heir and/or spouse (that I turned into a vampire) would it be cheating or an unfair advantage to keep them in the house for the rest of the challenge after whenever they were turned, or do they need to be moved out (kind of goes with my second question). I know I’d be taking up household spots, but I was thinking with the one child rule keeping one or two vampires around wouldn’t hurt if it wasn’t against the rules?

Thank you for your time and for converting this for sims 4! This looks really fun.

Good question. I haven't played the vampire challenge so I also haven't tested it in game to see what works and what doesn't.

So I will answer the question generically first, The way I read the part about moving out being required only applies to any extra children that are born due to twins or triplets. As for vampires, since it doesn't say specifically, I would say that you have the freedom to choose what happens when their generation is over. And for the founder, again the choice is yours because it doesn't specify.

Now, my turn - is you are considering playing with vampires, does this sound reasonable and within the spirit of the challenge, or do you have suggestions on how the mini challenge should be changed? It was copied from the Sims 3 version as is but I believe Sims 3 vampires do age and die, they just take longer.

After thinking this over a bit, I changed my mind a little. I think the mini challenge should be kept as is, and it should be up to the player to decide. I'm going to test out the challenge with moving out each generation of vampires once their (oldest or only) grandchild becomes a young adult, as I like having grandparents around. That way the house won't be overly crowded. Hopefully this will be easier on me (it can be hard handling big households) and still stay within the spirit of the challenge.

Yeah, I like the idea of leaving it up to the player. As you play through it, let me know if you find anything else.

*Raises hand* Question. With the Island Living pack, the Lot Trait Off the Grid and the career Conservationist were added. Would it be to big a deviation from the rules to say use the lot trait until electricity is unlocked(although this might be seen as like an extra hard thing since you can’t use ANY form of plumbing with this lot trait just bushes)? Also with the Conservationist career, could it be a good career to add to the list of careers. I know it’s a work from home type of job? But it makes sense in the narrative of the challenge that making sure the environment is habitable is a priority, especially when frowning crops.

Just thought I’d ask.

Both are good suggestions. I have been thinking Off the Grid would be a good option for those that want the strict path. Maybe it can be optional for any that want to use it. Definitely not a big deviation since it holds with the intent of the challenge, but as you mention, it makes the start harder.

I haven't really looked at the Conservationist career yet, but depending on the details, it would be good idea to add it to an appropriate generation. It sounds like it would be best at the start of the challenge.
